WEST PALM BEACH — A man is suing Credit One Bank N.A., a debt collector, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protect Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
Chris Beitler filed a complaint on Dec. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Credit One Bank N.A., alleging that the debt collector improperly called the plaintiff several times in an attempt to collect an alleged debt.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from receiving collection calls several times that violated the law. The plaintiff holds Credit One Bank N.A. responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to call him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, punitive damages, actual damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Stefan A. Alvarez and William Peerce Howard of The Consumer Protection Firm, PLLC in Tampa.
